    The sticker under the seat. There is a similar one in the right hand glove box.
    The one thing I do not necessarily agree with is if I am going to away for a weekend with luggage I will put the tire pressure somewhere in the middle of solo riding and two up as my gear for the weekend will be less weight than my girlfriend. The tire pressure is important because if it is to high you will have less rubber on the road and if the pressure is to low your tires will wear poorly and run to hot

    A bad day on the C650 GT scooter is better than the best day at work

    Find a skinnier girlfriend and you'll cut down on tire inflation / deflation time.
